After some teasing on Twitter, Netflix has released the latest trailer for Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio,
showing a dark and beautiful rendition of the classic tale — with the gorgeous attention to detail
the director is known for. We first got a glimpse at the stop-motion film through a short teaser at
the beginning of the year. It stars Ewan McGregor as Cricket and David Bradley as Geppetto,
with Gregory Mann in the titular role. Del Toro — best known for films like The Shape of Water,
Crimson Peak, and Pan’s Labyrinth — is co-directing Pinocchio alongside Mark Gustafson,
and he has previously described the movie as something of a passion project.
“After years of pursuing this dream project, I found my perfect partner in Netflix,” he said back in
2020. “We have spent a long time curating a remarkable cast and crew and have been blessed by
continuous support from Netflix to quietly and carefully soldier on, barely missing a beat.
